发表时间:2011/8/1字号:T|T
A plumber has built the world's LONGEST motorbike - which is an incredible 22 metres (72ft) long.
  在一位管道工的巧手之下,一辆世界上最长的摩托车诞生了,这辆摩托车车身长竟达到了二十二米!
 
  Colin Furze, 31, spent a month building the 25-seater bike, which is as long as a tennis court!
  31岁的Colin Furze花了一个月的时间来“闭门造车”才有了这辆设有25个座位交通工具,车身相当于一个网球场的长。
 
 
  He used one-and-a-half 125cc mopeds which he extended using an aluminium frame and drove the bike a MILE along the runway at Saltby Airfield in Grantham, Lincs.
  Colin Furze采用了一辆半125cc的轻便型摩托车,并且使用铝制框架延长了车身,就这样,他驾驶着这辆车在英格兰的Saltby机场行驶了一公里的距离。
 
  He managed to get the bike, which is worth around £3,000, up to 35mph, but found it almost impossible to steer.
  Colin Furze曾试图将这辆造价3000英镑的摩托车的时速提高到35英里每小时,不过结果他却发现要提速几乎是不可能的事。
 
  'When I first got on it I thought it would never work and at a slow speed it's almost impossible to keep upright.
  “当我第一次驾驶时,我认为它肯定是没办法上路的,而且速度会非常的慢,并且要走直线也是很难的。”
 
  'But once you get going it becomes a bit easier, although it is a real strain on your arms as it has such heavy steering.
  “尽管手握着这样一个笨重的方向盘会使人感到不小的心理压力,不过在上手之后驾驶会变得越来越轻松。”
 
  'It wobbled a huge amount as I drove along and apparently the back of the bike was weaving around all over the place.
  “我在摩托车的行驶中发现车身会严重的晃来晃去,车尾更是被非常明显的被甩来甩去。”
 
  'It is very difficult to handle and it would be hard to ride on the roads as you need about six widths of road to turn. I think it is really built for Roman roads.'
  “要驾驭它很是费力,就更别说上路之后会有更加的困难了,马路需要拓宽六倍才够这辆车转弯,我想这车只能在罗马的路上行驶吧。”
 
  Colin constructed the massive motorcycle, which takes three people to move, in his mum's back garden.
  Colin所建造的这只庞然大物甚至需要在三个人的协助之下才能用他母亲的后院这种移动出来。
 
  He had to cut the bikes and construct the aluminium frame, which has been made in three parts then bolted together.
  他不得不将普通的摩托车拆分,并且装上了铝制的链条,然后再将这三部分拼接在一起。
 
  To make it into the record books, Colin had to drive the bike 100 metres, but amazingly he managed to ride more than a mile.
  为了能使车载入世界纪录,他必须驾驶车行驶一百米的距离,不过结果却完成了令人惊讶不已的超过一公里的路程。
 
  He will now send the video along with signed witness statements to Guinness World of Records, so they can verify it.
  现在他要做的便是将记录了这一过程的录影带以及见证人的证明一起寄往世界吉尼斯纪录,以便获得认证。
 
  Colin already holds the world record for the fastest mobility scooter, which he built to go at a remarkable 71mph.
  Colin拥有世界上最快速度代步代步车的驾驶世界记录,行驶速度达到了两步棋的每小时71公里。
 
  'This motorbike was so heavy and difficult to drive I think it would be impossible to make a longer bike. I think this record will stand for a very long time," he added.
  “这辆摩托车既笨重由非常难驾驶,我想要造出比着更长得车大概是不大可能的事,我认为这个记录应该可以保持相当长的一段时间。”
 
  According to Guinness World of Records the longest motorbike in the world until now was 14 metres.
  吉尼斯世界纪录到目前为止所记录的最长得摩托车车身长为14米。
